Subject: Better than the auds
And better than any other SBD source I've heard. Flawless job, AGAIN, by Mr. Miller.
Subject: Contrary to the review below
This Soundboard is probably less dry and sterile than most and is infinitely more pleasurable to listen to than the audience recording available on IA. The fact that sound board recordings do not capture the "ambience" of the room or in this case the outdoor stadium is not do to incompetence but is just the nature of the recording method as the microphones are placed directly in front of the speaker cabinets and not hundreds of feet from the stage. The boys do seem to be under the influence of some sort of stimulant to my ears. Im going to give this a four.
Subject: Skip the boards , isten to the audience
Unfortunately the board from 6-10-73 captures none of the majesty of this concert. It is truly remarkable how exceptionally poor handling of the soundboard during this period (72-74) can actually disguise great performance. One would never guess from this recording that the Eyes of the World contains such exciting and dynamic playing that it deserves to be mentioned along with established and universally acknowledged great jams like 2/27/69 Dark Star (Live Dead). It is truly a monumental jam.
You have to scrap the SB and listen to the audience tapes to really "hear" this concert. [I was there.]
There are some weak points, where whatever Jerry smoked or snorted between 1st and 2nd sets began to wear off. The Dark Star is also remarkable, up to the verse before Jerry deteriorates into spastic doodling mode.
Things start to fall apart here and also in Wharf Rat, where Jerry is clearly in need of another snort...
Most of the show is excellent. It is most notable for the jams. Besides Eyes and Dark Star, terrific Bird Song and Here Comes Sunshine.
Playing in the Band jam is typically uninspiring as it was during this period. Great song choice overall, but again, there is no joy in the soundboard. It sounds completely sterile.
The standard 'wisdom' on this show is that the final set with Allmans is the highlight. Nonsense. The second set is a true standout, in my opinion the very best of the year, mainly because of the unequaled Eyes.
One more time: LISTEN TO THE AUDIENCE.
Four stars because of incompetence on the soundboard.
I've listened to this many times over the years and I'm still in awe of the energy and musicianship displayed in this show. Nice sounding remaster Charlie. Thanks.

Subject: Great Sound
The Best part of getting older must be the fact that you guys got to see them during ths time. Being a "Touch Head" I was that little kid on Sunshine Day Dream Movie. Thanks Charlie!!! The music will change lives for ever due to your efforts.
Does anyone know? We come together to listen to some friends play some music and we remain friends some 30-40 yrs later....
was it the weed... was it the times.... was it the power of exploring independence...
maybe...it is in the chord ... that long extended chord that wanders across valleys and heights in order to find that perfect extension of self ... the soul looking for a definition of itself ...
but there really is nowhere to look ... because it is here ...
Mr Miller .... unto you be greatness ... your work is holding me together ... So many times I have looked and seen your name ...
To everyone at the archive .... a honkin' good thank-you from a friend you'll probably never get to meet ....
But you guys will always be ... because we will always be looking for that chord ...
Damn this is a good show!!!!!!! I am lost in the ozone here this morning.....
Where oh where ....
Subject: Lovin this one!
that's all. Great show!
Subject: Very nice sound
Thank you for your tireless efforts in upgrading these shows, Mr. Miller. Thank you archive!
Subject: great vibes and best sound fidelity ever
Nice efforts all around by Charlie Miller et all. This show was my favorite for all-around best. Not the best ever played. Just my personal fav. Vibes were just right, the boys were in a nice groove, and the sound engineers nailed the wall of sound. Best damn sound fidelity I ever heard come out of a PA System, period! And the Aux PA towers back on the in-field added a blissful fill to the sound candy there. I remember this show lasting a total of 8 hours, including breaks for the boys and the long jam at the end.
There is a one-minute loss caused by the reel change in GDTRFB. I have a one-minute patch from my AUD that I made. It's cross-faded into this fixed track for you.
old GDTRFB is 9:34
new GDTRFB is 10:36
here's the Shorten fix
here's the Vbr_Mp3 fix

Subject: Classy Cleanup of a 4 hr 34 min Classic
What else can I say? You all know from GD Lore and previous reviews that it was a great performance, so, the only focus of review would be for it's sound quality.
This is a beefy recording (with some minor clipping) which has been so well electronically clarified that, even at low volume, this sounds super.
Thank you Charlie Miller for the stellar upgrade.
Thank you Grateful Dead
Thank you Archives.org
